The Vulcans have climbed the conference ladder since head coach Kaniela Aiona came on board in the 2020–21 season.
The Vulcans finished fourth in the conference last year with a 13-7 tally and were 17-9 overall. Aiona welcomes back eight of his players, including reigning PacWest Newcomer of the Year Carlos Ramsey Jr. and PacWest Defender of the Year Nadjrick Peat.
